  • Anderson eliminates Eminence boys

    Eminence’s best boys’ basketball season in five years came to a halt Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District tournament as Anderson County forced the Warriors into 22 turnovers and knocked down plenty of long-range shots in a 69-45 win.
    It advanced Anderson to the semifinals of the district tournament, hosted by Spencer County High School, and ended Eminence’s season with a 10-18 record — its best since going 14-13 in 2006.

  • Tournament time arrives

    In a season that flew by way too quick, the end has arrived.

    High school basketball teams across Kentucky are wrapping up their regular seasons this week and the postseason is about to start all across the state. District tournaments are next week — including the 30th District at Spencer County High School and the 31st District at Henry County High School — and the 8th Region tournament will be the following week at HCHS.

  • 10th straight win over in-county rival for Cats

    In the final county basketball showdown this season between the two high schools in Henry County, the visiting Wildcats scored the game’s first 17 points and easily won 84-57 on Saturday night.

    Playing at Warrior Gymnasium, the Wildcats outscored Eminence 15-0 in the opening quarter and stretched that lead to 27 points by the end of the night. Henry also beat Eminence earlier in the season, 52-36, in a much-tighter game when Henry did not pull away until the final quarter. This time around, there was no doubt.

  • Eminence girls snap 19-game streak

    Snapping a 19-game losing streak that dated back to Dec. 7, the Eminence girls’ basketball team beat Portland Christian on Friday night, 39-28, for its second win this season.

    The Warriors opened the 2010-11 season in early December with a loss to Henry County, then beat Evangel Christian before dropping the next 19 games. They entered this week, the final one of the regular season, at 2-20.

  • Ladycats enter their final week even at 11-11

    Dropping their final 31st District game of the regular season and beating a 16-win team the following day, the Henry County Ladcyats are even at 11-11 entering the homestretch — their final week of the regular season.

    The basketball team lost to Gallatin County (44-39) on Friday night, then came back on Saturday to beat Kentucky Country Day (46-34). The Ladycats play three games this week and open the district tournament, which they host, next Tuesday against Owen County in their final chance to make some noise this season.

  • Gallatin gives Henry its first 31st District loss

    Without much riding on Friday night’s outcome, and neither team wanting to show much of what they have, Gallatin County gave visiting Henry County its first 31st District loss this season, 46-42.

    Henry was perfect at 5-0 in district play leading up to Friday night and had already secured the top seed in the district tournament. Regardless who won, Henry would play Carroll County in the opening round, Gallatin would play Owen County, and the winners would meet in the championship.

  • Three straight for Warriors

    With consecutive wins over Carroll County, Williamstown and Portland Christian last week, the Eminence boys’ basketball team strung together another winning streak and its 10 wins this season is the most since 2006.

    The Warriors beat Carroll (50-33) last Tuesday night, Williamstown (53-52) on Thursday and Portland Christian (67-59) on Friday to improve to 10-16 on the season. Eminence’s 2005-06 squad was 14-13, which marked the last time EHS finished with a winning record.

  • Irresponsibility at heart of animal control

    Animal control can be a large expense to county and metropolitan taxpayers, and there is one central reason why: irresponsible pet ownership.

    Basically, overcrowded animal shelters and overwhelmed animal-welfare groups are cleaning up messes made by people who refuse to do the right thing when it comes to their pets. Trust me, I know exactly how expensive this can be.

    Over the past eight years or so, Trimble and Henry counties had been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Kentucky Humane Society to handle local animal control.
